It took me about 7 years of dreaming to finally create my podcast. In 7 years, I encouraged others in their podcast journey, and I listened to approximately 84562 podcast episodes that were created by other people.
I do not regret this.
And still, so much of what kept my own creative project always-in-the-future, was that I LOVE podcasts so much – and listen to many high-quality podcasts – that I was sure I wasn’t yet ready to produce one at a level I was proud of.
So often, this happens with our creative projects. We’re such lovers of the medium (ex. books) and such fans of “the greats” (ex. authors), that we hold ourselves back because our bar is so high.
In this solo-episode, I reflect on the ways we can move past our creative hesitation or frozenness around the projects in front of us…
In this episode, I share:
:: The apparent-paradox of liberating our freedom to be imperfect, while also walking the path of integrity
:: A personal story of when I was stopped-in-my-tracks in a creative project, and how we can develop shame resilience by cultivating an inner voice of encouragement.
:: The role of Creative Cheerleaders (and how to create your squad)
:: Why working WITH fears is important to the process (vs. “smashing” / “crushing” them)
:: Why your skill in executing may have nothing to do with your talent
:: I also tell you the random and embarrassing story of when I met my “celebrity” crush, who also turns out to be one of my way-showers around creating imperfectly.
